“overall a good stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2011

We thought the price and location were good for this property. All of the staff we came in contact with were very friendly and the rooms were very clean (I even saw them lift the beds to mop under).

We had a couple of issues that did not ruin the stay but caused small problems - on arrival the AC unit was turned on but the setting was incorrect - we took a snooze and woke to a still hot room. The staff then corrected it while we were out for a meal (the remote is bolted to the wall). Also, the hot water was not turned on in our room. We inquired about it with staff and it was corrected but then throughout the remainder of our stay, sometimes it would work and other times not.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2010

Overall Hotel Kekoldi is a lovely place to stay. It's located on a quiet street about a 10 minutes walk from the centre of Granada. Our room was spacious and clean with a lovely, hot shower. The hotel is nicely decorated with beautiful interiors. Our tour group were given a free alcoholic drink on arrival at the small bar/eating area. The free breakfast was lovely with toast, cereal, gallo pinto (rice n beans), fruit and other items to order at a cost. The only downsides were that our room was right by reception so it was quite noisy especially when staff started playing music at 5.45am! And I was short changed when buying water at reception which I'm sure was intentional because it was an easy amount to return to me. I'm putting this down to one moody night staff member rather than a negative on the rest of the staff who in general seemed friendly.

Management and Staff

The staff is very friendly, willing to help with anything they can, even an afternoon cup of coffee was offered once on a rainy afternoon. What is not imediately in the webpage to read is that payment by creditcard is 10% more expensive than if you pay cash.

Location

The hotel is located very nearby the center of Granada. If you arrive by bus from Costa Rica, it's very easy to reach the hotel and from the hotel you can easily go exploring the city on foot. The hotel is in a quiet street which makes it be no problem that all rooms enter the open main hall of the hotel directly.

Bedrooms

The bedrooms are big and clean. We stayed in a 4 people room, with 2 queen sized beds. The bathroom is nice and clean, though the shower seems a bit weird in the beginning, because it doesn't have neither a curtain nor a door. The rooms are airconditioned and they have a TV, for people who are interested.

Food

The included breakfast is good. It's a simple buffet of typical food. It has Gallo Pinto, coffee, milk, every day another fruit drink, cereals, butter, jam, fresh fruits, fried plantain and bread. It's very well taken care of and if you need to leave early on your day of departure, it's possible to have a basic form of the usual breakfast even 2 hours before the normal breakfast time.

Services

The hotel has internet access in a computer wich you can use free of charge, it's possible to have a drink in the evening at the tables in the main hall of the hotel. The staff of the hotel has information about tours in the city.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2010

We stayed here four nights and were highly impressed by the helpfulness, kindness, and sense of responsibility among the staff members, particularly the front desk ladies. Really great people!
The rooms are nice; the hotel itself is pretty grand and rooms are on the sides of a big courtyard with a nice fountain. Very open and airy. The beds are good, air conditioner worked fine and the bathrooms are good sized. I just wish the windows were open-able, the room did get somewhat stuffy.
The hotel offers a daily breakfast buffet included in the room fee and you can order more things if you like. I enjoyed the food very much.
There's a computer to check internet and although the hotel was full, I never had to wait to use it.

I enjoyed my stay here and would recommend it to anyone!

This place is a great value and is charming. It's only about 3 blocks walk from the central park. It's very much in the Central American style with the rooms arranged around 3 courtyards. It's clean and comfortable and the staff is friendly. The breakfats is good - OJ, coffee, toast, gallo pinto, fried platains, and fresh fruit. My room was on the small side but simple and comfortable with air conditioning, tv and a small desk.

We loved our stay at this hotel. It is a no frills hotel that is clean and comfortable. They have a decent breakfast that is usually included. The staff is friendly and helpful.

They are about a 5 mins walk from the central park where all the action is.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

  • Liked — Value for money.
  • Disliked — I wish they had a phone in the room.
